California Sun (1977) by Ramones;
Hot Child In The City (1978) by Nick Gilder;
You Make Loving Fun (1977) by Fleetwood Mac;
Right Back Where We Started From (1976) by Maxine Nightingale;
Wouldn't It Be Nice (1966) by The Beach Boys.
When Annette goes to cool off, she picks up a pail of water to dump over herself, but she is already soaking wet.
Annette: So I said to Michael, "You're not supposed to eat the plastic wrapping," and that's how we met.
Eric: My god. It's like Love Story.
Donna: I don't know anybody else. California people are freaks! Like that guy: You can't smoke that out here! I miss Eric... This guy even looks like Eric... Oh my God!... Eric!
(Eric has just returned from California; Red and Kitty know that he went)
Kitty: What do you have to say for yourself?
Eric: I... I brought you a sea shell.
Red: Just get in the damn house!
Kelso: Did you look at [Annette]? She's so hot she could be a robot.
Red: Let me tell you something. If the US Government decides to stick a tracking device up your ass, you say "Thank you!" ...And "God bless America!"
(talking to Eric about going California)
Red: No. No California. You know what's important? School. You're going to be a senior and you need to buckle down.
Kitty: Luke Skywalker would have buckled down.
Eric: You know what? That's it. I'm going. I'll just show up in California and like, blow [Donna]'s mind. Yeah! I mean, when the Empire killed Luke Skywalker's aunt and uncle, did he just call him up? No! He hopped on the Millennium Falcon and he paid a little visit to the Death Star.
Eric: It's ringing... it's ringing... Oh my God, it's ringing. (hangs up the phone)
Fez: And Eric chickens out again. Quack, quack, quack.
Annette: So, all you care about is sex. I thought that there was more to you than that.
Kelso: But there isn't.
Jackie: Look, Eric, just write her a letter. That's how I broke up with Michael. I was able to take my time and come up with good synonyms for ... cowardly won't-marry-me loser, run-away-to-California jackass!
Kelso: I mean, come on, guys, just give me a few hours, ok? Look, this girl is beautiful, and she believes in me. And if I can get her to put out, she will be 3 out of 3. But right now she's only 2 out of 3, and I'm sorry but 50% just ain't gonna cut it.
Jackie (pulling Donna aside): Look, Donna, I know you're nervous about seeing people at school after running away and all. But I want you to know it's all under control. I told everyone you went away to have a baby.
Kelso: Man, I've been gone all summer, and I get back, and everything's just the same. I guess nothing ever changes around here. (leaves the basement)
(Hyde rapidly moves onto the couch, straddling Jackie's leg as they begin to make out)
Kelso: You know, in Wisconsin, if you win a girl a giant purple rhinoceros, she puts out!
Kelso: I love [Annette]!
Eric: No you don't.
Kelso: Well I love parts of her!
The opening credits used from this episode no longer feature Tommy Chong as Leo. The same opening sequence was used, but the scene with Leo and all the guys was replaced by the scene with only Kitty, Donna and Jackie.
This version of the opening sequence is the one that lasted the longest. It was used until the season 7 finale.
This episode was supposed to be the first part of a 3-part story-arc.
All the episodes in season five are named after Led Zeppelin songs.
